UH College of Education: Giving - University of Houston
Skip to main content


At the University of Houston College of Education, we’re building a network of students, faculty, staff, alumni and friends committed to improving educational and health outcomes for all children and families. We’re fueling a future of stronger, healthier communities in Houston and beyond. To our donors, we say thank you. Your investments transform lives.

President Khator and Dean McPherson


As UH has ascended to Tier One status, the College of Education also has transformed. We've increased the rigor and relevance of our instruction and scholarship. We've grown research activity by nearly 50 percent over the last five years. And we've earned national recognition from U.S. News & World Report for our graduate online education program and from the Association of Teacher Educators for our teacher-preparation program.

To accelerate to the next level, we must continue to invest in the College.

How can you help?

  • Scholarships help attract top students who can graduate without the burden of debt.
  • Endowed professorships help recruit and retain top-notch faculty.
  • Donations to our centers and institutes help advance research and empower the community in the areas of education and health.

Together, we can continue to transform lives.
